Join thousands of tech enthusiasts and participate. The cost of two GT cards or a single GT is roughly the same, and the performance is close.
Initially this struck me as being a little odd, but then the more I thought about it, the more sense it made. For example, Gigabyte went with a basic heatpipe design and MSI used a large black heatsink with a copper pipe at the base to help evenly distribute the heat. Not only has Albatron made their GT completely silent using a high-quality passive cooler, but by doing so has allowed for a 50MHz core and a MHz memory clock increase.

However given such an overclock, performance can be boosted dramatically. So basically, the reason why we initially see such a huge range of generic graphics cards is because the race is on to deliver the product as soon as possible, at the best price.
Rather than including several poor quality games, Albatron offers nothing more than the NVIDIA drivers suite which has allowed them to budget for a “better” graphics card. The end result is an impressive-looking passive heatsink that keeps the GPU core and memory cool at all times.

In fact, Albatron has created a nice little GeForce GT option focusing purely on the graphics card itself. Add your comment to this article You need to be a member to leave a comment.
msii The GeForce GT on the other hand did not get the attention of the GT upon launch and there did not seem to be such a rush to get this product to the masses.
Recently I heard a rumor that ATI will ship their next generation graphics cards without a reference cooler.
Not one manufacturer went with anything other than the plain and boring reference cooling solution, which I might add was extremely noisy. Mmsi consult the performance results in the next few pages before we draw any conclusions Making matters worse, almost all of them were built on the same plain old green PCB. Of course, now there is a little bit of diversity in the GT range as big name manufacturers such as 7300vt and Gigabyte are onto their second or third revision.

For example, when the GeForce GT cards were first released, I found myself with half a dozen graphics cards that looked almost identical in every way. TechSpot Account Sign up for freeit takes 30 seconds.
However, it was Albatron that impressed me the most, with their very serious heatsink design that does bare a remarkable 7300ggt to that of ASUS’ Silent coolers.
This was extremely disappointing as the GeForce GT was set to be the number one choice for affordable gaming. As a result, it has been far more joyful testing these cheaper low-end graphics cards, as each and every one seems to be a little different.
